Experts Testify Delta tunnels are ‘poor investment for Bay Area'

On March 11 several experts testified at a San Francisco hearing that the Water Fix, a proposal to build two huge tunnels to divert water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and the Bay Estuary, would be detrimental to the Bay Area’s environment and economy, including the region’s tourism and fishing industries.
